Thesis Statement/Controlling Idea Each student will receive one of the three parts of an introduction paragraph that is either (for or against) the argument that school should have a later start time. Copy this down on a separate sheet of paper.
  7. 7. Scavenger Hunt (Hook, Topic, Thesis) Step One: Write down what pieces you need to complete your intro paragraph. Step Two: Decide whether the piece you have is (for or against ) later start times for students. Step Three: Find the other two pieces from your classmates and write them down to create a intro –paragraph. The pieces you find from your peers must agree with the argument (for or against).
  8. 8.

  9. 9. Correct Introduction ParagraphsFor later start times: Do you enjoy going to school at 7 in the morning? Are you fully awake and think you can handle life’s many daily challenges to the fullest of your ability? I think not. -We at Fordham High School need more sleep. In order to fulfill this task, the school day would have to start at a later time. Everyone would benefit from these changes. Students would be less irritable in class, and they would also be more attentive to teachers little lectures, because their books will not be used as pillows. Many teenage high school students are tired during the school day, distracting them from their studies. This is one of the many good reasons why the starting time of school should be later in the day.  
  10. 10. Correct Intro-ParagraphAgainst Later Start Times Isn’t nice finishing school at 3:00 and having your whole afternoon ahead of you? The down side for starting school at a later time is the fact that we would be in school later in the day. We would not get out of school until 4:30 instead of 3:00. That would throw off everything, work schedules, athletic schedules, detentions; all sorts of things would be different. Starting school late and ending the day later would pose a problem to the bus company, day care centers, and the working parents of the students. So we should not change the start time of school, because it would in fact create huge problems at the end of the day.

  25. 25.  In ancient Greece, Socrates was reputed to hold knowledge in high esteem. One day one fellow met the great philosopher and said, "Do you know what I just heard about your friend?". "Hold on a minute," Socrates replied. "Before telling me anything Id like you to pass a little test. Its called the Triple Filter Test.". "Triple filter?". "Thats right," Socrates continued. "Before you talk to me about my friend, it might be a good idea to take a moment and filter what youre going to say. Thats why I call it the triple filter test. The first filter is Truth. Have you made absolutely sure that what you are about to tell me is true?" "No," the man said, "actually I just heard about it and...". "All right," said Socrates. "So you dont know if its true or not. Now lets try the second filter, the filter of Goodness. Is what you are about to tell me about my friend something good?" . "No, on the contrary...". "So," Socrates continued, "you want to tell me something bad about him, but youre not certain its true. You may still pass the test though, because theres one filter left: the filter of Usefulness. Is what you want to tell me about my friend going to be useful to me?" "No, not really." "Well," concluded Socrates, "if what you want to tell me is neither true nor good nor even useful, why tell it to me at all?"

  36. 36.  Wrongfully Convicted by Angelina Merrill Some people are wrongfully convicted. Putting in Appeals, hoping the charges will be lifted. A prison cell, now their new home. Entrapped, inside razor barb fences. With no more freedom to roam. A lot of precious years, will be lost. At somebody elses cost. Taking everything day by day. The only thing left to do is hope and pray. Maybe some day, the real criminal will meet their fate. Wrongfully convicted, and having a lot of hate. Pushed through the system, so they can close the case. Not able to accept what has happened. Sooner or later, it will have to be faced. Innocent as hell, we shouldnt be here.
